Felicia is amazing! My husband, baby and I thank her from the bottom of our hearts for being such a wonderful, caring and attentive doula. Could not have done this without her. Hiring was the best decision. Felicia helped us after my C-Section and took care of our baby girl like she was her own. She was supportive in every way and we learned a lot from her too. Thanks again Felicia and we will be in touch!
Felicia was a true blessing.
Short story: She is knowledgeable, dependable and efficient. She's great with babies whether they be premies or multiples. I highly recommend her as a doula to transition you as a new parent and the baby into your house.
Long story: I'm a type A single mom by choice without family in the area. I thought I was prepared, having read books and attended baby 101 class at the hospital. However, you forget that when you are released you may be on narcotics, excessively sleep deprived and hormonal. Felicia was instantly helpful anticipating my needs. But the reason I so strongly endorse her is that she recognized an early problem with my early term baby not eating, despite her tricks (cold washcloth to the bum) which necessitated a middle of the night call to my on-call doctor. I was so out of it that I would have thought I was lucky he was a good sleeper.
But wait. It didn't stop there. After I was on my own a while I caught that nasty norovirus. An emergency call to Felicia and she took care of us both for a full 24 hours, not sleeping. She picked me off the bathroom floor, got me to urgent care for IV fluids, and kept my baby away from me so he couldn't get sick. She even helped keep me on track for pumping. When she left I had home cooked meals in the fridge and a clean house.
I will always be grateful to Felicia for her help making my little one thrive while educating and supporting me. You won't go wrong by choosing Felicia!
